Obituary of Hermann Walter Ehrle
Hermann Ehrle of Edmonton, passed away on September 11, 2022 at the age of 89. He is survived by two brothers and numerous nieces and nephews in Germany. Hermann was born in Germany and emigrated to Canada with friends in 1957. He worked for Edmonton Catholic Cemeteries for 40 years as groundskeeper, then supervisor. In his retirement, Hermann led a simple life with few wants and needs. His passion for gardening was apparent to all who knew him. Hermann took joy in sharing the vegetables he grew, in his large garden with others. He looked forward to weekly visits with friends, discussing current events, sharing a bottle of good German wine and playing cards or his favourite board game (Mensch) with his lucky blue die. Hermann also enjoyed cooking and was famously known for his potato salad which was a staple at family gatherings. His kind nature was evident in his propensity for remembering any special dates such as birthdays, anniversaries and for helping neighbours. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. At Hermann’s request no formal service will be held. Cremation entrusted to Memories Funeral Home & Crematorium.
